Police are looking for a man they say threatened to blow up power poles and power boxes near a popular Edmond park.

A police report and search warrant reveal police found large amounts of explosive chemicals inside the mobile home in which he was living. Now Edmond police have handed over their investigation to the DA's office, and are waiting for them to formally charge

Police are on the lookout for 24-year-old Charles Jayden of Edmond. According to the search warrant, police were called out to a mobile home on South Vista Lane in reference to a drug overdose.

When they searched the home, they found bags of potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate, aluminum powder, red iron oxide, and calcium carbonate limestone. All the chemicals can be used for making explosives and are considered very dangerous if not handled properly.

Columbus and his roommates have been evicted from the mobile home park. Columbus is currently facing charges for grand larceny. It will be up to the DA's office whether to charge him with 3rd-degree arson or anything else.
